is it perceived as weakness? >> because the united states has essentially abandoned the rhetoric and approach about the war on terror out of a mistaken view somehow the war on terror is offensive to all muslims. that is simple minded view of the muslim world to begin with and fails to recognize how much harm terrorism has brought to muslims. it also shows a declining withdrawing america from iraq, from afghanistan, not being able to deal with terrorism in places like syria and the gaza strip and not being able to restrain iran and support for terrorism and nuclear weapons program. all of that continues of the impression of declining united states. >> jamie: and increasing sentiment of anti-americanism in places we wouldn't have expected it and those perceived as allies like pakistan in the news today. the question is, can this sentiment not only be from the protestors and from the treasureists of the world but also from the governments of these countries that we need to count as our allies in a war against terror? >> pakistan is very, very difficult country from the u.s. perspective and in th
have been telling us that for months now they've been warning the united states about this growing extremist threat and that they have been growing ever more concerned about how little control they actually themselves have over the situation. >> arwa, please be careful over there in benghazi. we'll stay in close touch. arwa damon, one of our courageous journalists. the egyptian capital is tense, the u.s. embassy is tense. ben wedeman, what's going on now? are they out in tahrir square? >> at the moment it's gone relatively quiet. ta tahrir square looks normal, given it's 3:00 a.m.. in the streets below me, just a few protesters milling around. we haven't heard the bang of tear gas being fired by the security forces. this day could have been much worse in egypt. the muslim brotherhood had called for nationwide protests against this offensive youtube video that sparked this crisis, but at the last moment they cancelled those protests. so really we've seen a small protest outside the u.s. consulate in alexandria. here in cairo the numbers are down. it's important to keep in mind there
shakes the resolve of the united states of america. >> secretary of state, hillary clinton, tonight paid tribute to the two security personnel killed alongside ambassador chr chris stevens. tyrone wood and glen dougherty. she said, this violence should shock people of all faiths and traditions. people of conscience and good will every we are must stand together against violence, hate and division. we have two reporters covering this story for us. arwa damon is in tripoli. ben wedeman is in cairo. let me go to arwa. you are in benghazi for us right now. what's the scene like there? >> well, everyone we have been speaking to and i literally just landed here two hours ago, is incredibly distraught of what took place. they are in utter shock and want to make clear how anguished they are over what transpired. they want the world to know, this is not libya or an action that was supported by the vast majority of libyans. this most certainly is not why they want revolution. many of them reiterated against the fact that they expect them to the united states to nato for their aid. that being said,
the truth. >> reporter: the question is whether the united states underestimated the threat from hostile groups here. one security libyan official told me he met with officials three days before the attack took place. he says he warned them not for the first time that security in benghazi was deteriorating. he said, "we told the americans the situation was frightening. it scares us." the ambassador, too, seems to be aware of the general threat from islamist militants, but no one anticipated the terrible violence that would take his life and the life of three other americans on tuesday night. arwa damon, cnn, benghazi, libya. >>> we have also seen several days of mass protests and demonstrations in egypt, but egyptian security forces there have cracked down arresting more than 140,000 protesters. let's bring in ian lee. half the protests there let up in the capital? >> well, randi, it seems to be over now. earlier this morning the police with the heavy, heavy presence pushed the protesters away from the u.s. embassy, forcing them to tahrir square and from there they pushed them out of the
united states senators, a big majority democratic majority in the house. they could do anything they wanted to without republican help, and they did. the stimulus was supposed to have us at 6% unemployment. it has been a flop. it grew the government, hasn't create jobs. obama care was supposed to lower premiums for everybody. this $2,200 per person higher, and people were not -- guess what, they're losing six million or seven million people that have been displaced. they promised to reduce the deficit in half in its first term. this went up by 51%. this is why mitt romney is in good shape. during the debates, we're about to focus on four years of barack obama, not everything just about what mitt romney may have said or puts his dog on the car. >> it is true that this president campaigned more than any other, although they all campaign on let's change washington because everybody hates washington, but this president, more than any other, has been one that said i'm going to go in there, and i'm iffing to change washington, hope and change, hope and change, and now he says, you kno

fall into that category, people like his parents. >> they came back to the united states and my dad had to get help, financial help, the government helped his family to be able to get on their feet again. by the way, that's the way america works. >> there's also video from back when george romney was running for office and facing charges that he was wealthy and simply out of touch. this is mitt romney's mother, lenore, back in 1962. >> you know we've only owned our home for the last four years. he was a refugee from mexico. he was on relief, welfare relief for the first years of his life, but this great country gave him opportunities. >> mitt romney's mom talking about how her husband's family was on government relief when he was a child. so will disclosures like that, governor romney's own father benefited from a program that the son has characterized as populated by quote, victims, help the romney campaign reboot, or will it further knock him off message? mark mckinnen is a conservative who has been sharply critical of mitt romney on this issue and also is a former top campaign adviso
of all, what can you tell us ab about the u.s. response? what the united states is now doing? >> you mentioned it briefly, erin. right now, we've learned two navy warships are heading to the coast of libya. both of those are equipped with tomahawk cruise missiles. those are satellite guided and can be programmed to strike a specific target. now, when one got the order, it was just a couple of miles away. the other was a few day's sail. but we know that the u.s. had been conducted drone flights over libya for months. today, we learned that surveillance will be much more focused on trying to find the insurgent cell responsible for this attack. so, between the drone surv surveillance and these two ships, when they get there, that gives the administration some options. >> what's the response on the ground in libya to that, to the fact united states is sending in warships? marines? >> we have not heard a reaction yet from the government here. they have been busy electing a new prime minister amid this chaos and what seems to be a real disaster for the new libya, but i have spoken with ord
yet regarding this announcement by the united states, but earlier we heard from senior government officials, the prime minister -- the former prime minister now of libya and the speaker of parliament holding a press conference. strong condemnation of the attack vowing to bring the perpetrators to justice and the speaker of the parliament saying this attack coincided with september 11th, that they believe there is a link there, hinting that this was carried out by the islamist extremist groups that operate in eastern libya and saying that libya will not allow that its land be used by these groups to carry out what he described as revenge attacks against the west. at the same time saying that they will need the help of the international community in confronting these groups. people here, anderson, really shocked by what happened. many libyans i've spoken to are really saddened by this attack and hope that the perpetrators are brought to justice. >> jill, the state department, we saw secretary of state clinton condemning the attacks. cnn has confirmed it was a planned attack. the att
, and we have sat still and watched this massacre go on now with over 20,000 people in the united states of america. the president of the united states has not said a word on behalf of the people who are being slaughtered and it is shameful. >> what type of leadership here? >> the turks and everybody in the region are crying out for american leadership and we should lead. voice the moral support as ronald reagan did for the people behind the iron curtain and this president will not do that. and establish a fight or a sanctuary or free zone where they can organize. look, everything that we worried about if we intervened would happen has now -- it happened because we didn't. there is a rise of al qaeda, and rise of extremisism and now a greater threat of the use of chemical weapons and this president unbelievably announced that the only thing he said is that if bashar al assad used chemicalsweapons, he has crossed the line and isn't that suggesting that everything up to that point is acceptable? >> and last month more than 70 iraqi officials were killed. >>> in pakistan, a christian girl a
will win this election, finish what we started and remind the world why the united states is the greatest nation on earth. >> the great debate five days away. why romney has to win and why obama can't afford to lose. i'll talk to my political a-team. also, bibi and the bomb. >> a red line should be drawn right here. >> after dropping this on the u.n. yesterday, he talks to obama and romney today. what israel's line in the sand would mean for all of us. plus, have you seen chelsea lately? >> nobody knows what the hell they're getting into when they're running for president. >> one of my favorites guests is back. >> i'm single, yes. >> if men are watching this -- >> yeah, i'm available. you know, just call me maybe. >> funny, feisty as ever, with a new look for her talk show. this is "piers morgan tonight." >>> good evening. the big story, the great debate. in just five days the event that could change the race for the white house permanently. the clock is ticking and the candidates know it. they meet face-to-face on wednesday. this weekend, both will be locked behind closed doors in practi
the race there, really. and that underdogs usually get on the stage with the president of the united states, they feel that vibe, they're at parity and i think she basicsly broadcasting it's okay and we expect it if the underdog wins here. but here's what i think has to happen for mitt romney. he needs to bring this race back to a referendum on obama. it was a referendum on president obama for awhile as any re-election should be, then it was a choice. now it's actually a referendum on mitt romney. he needs to shift the referendum back into the incumbent and have the debate questioners really hold the president to account for some answers in libya, his silence on syria and certainly the economy. >> jennifer, it's going to be a fascinating night, the debate. i can't wait to watch it. there is a point there, barack obama hasn't done a debate now for quite a long time. mitt romney spent most of the year debating and he got better and better. i thought actually he was a very good debater. one of the reasons he won the nomination was his ability to swat away all comers. so i would think this coul
for our viewers here in the united states. >>> this is "gps," the "global public square." welcome to all of you in the united states and around the world. i'm fareed zakaria. on today's show we'll bring you some of the best interviews of the year. first up, the most powerful man in america. no, not what you're thinking. that's what some people call one. who? he is behind the gop pledge never to raise taxes. then, who really creates jobs in this country? is it the 1% or the 99%? i'll talk to two 1st-ers who vmtvm vehemently disagree. >>> america won the race to the moon, that was 40 years ago. the u.s. is currently sitting on the bench in the current space race. will that hurt it back here on earth? >>> also, the world's great historian of the looervetmiddle bernard lewis, on the past and future of that world. >>> first, here's my take. so i thought i would take a step away from politics, the conventions and the campaigns and look around the world. you know, the other 95% of humanity. i wanted to focus in on a story that does not get enough attention -- africa. the imf says that six of th
their actions. it's never too early for the united states government to condemn attacks on americans and to defend our values. i think it's a terrible course for america to stand in apology for our values, that instead when our grounds are being attacked and being breached, that the first response to the united states must be outraged for the sovereignty of our nation. >> trying to get it straight about this, that was the most terrible statement i've heard in a long time. he never sympathized with the mobs. he certainly never sympathized with someone taking the lives of americans and someone serving our government. his people -- not even his people, regular career service people in cairo without checking with washington simply put out a statement. they said that they could share that they are not part of this absolutely outrageous disrespect. >> i think -- i don't know what mark thinks, but that was to me a little painful and infuriating to watch. because i think mitt romney -- i'm going to give him enough credit for knowing that the president in this context didn't apologize for any
's trying to do is show everybody that we're on this, the united states is doing well and you know, i think that's a kind of typical no drama obama response. >> alex, is that what it is, the cool head of the president? >> i think there's something to that, but i think there's also a little more, and that is that this president's great strength is his intellect. he lives inside his head and his ideas. and part of it is he doesn't really feel your pain like paul's former boss, bill clinton, but he can memorize a study about it, you know. people are distant from this president. there's a certain sense of arrogance to this white house that they're just detached from it and i think that's a vulnerability. we have two elite candidates running for president. we have an academic elite, barack obama, running against financial elite. so the middle class is up for grabs here. >> alex, i want to ask you about something i saw you tweet over the weekend. you said when i see romney he looks like a candidate. when i see obama he looks like a president. this should not be hard to fix, so fix it. what do you
of doubt and decline. we can elect mitt romney the president of the united states and get america back on track. >> shepard: democrats had planned a similar tactic to send vice president bide ton florida during the convention in florida. the president called off that visit because hurricane isaac was hitting. congressman ryan is leading the charge against the president it would appear, carl? >> that's right, shep. republicans are making good their pledge to make this the most aggressive counter argument that's ever happened at a convention. they do site he had planned to be in florida at the republic national convention though they were interrupted by isaac. marco rubio, nikki haley, the governor of south carolina, governor of oklahoma as well. ryan gave what was more the most part a standard stump speech signal the question for the week for are you better off now as you were four years ago reagan made famous. here is paul ryan's 2012 rendition. >> every president since the great depression who asked americans to send them into a second term could say you are better off today than you
in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with the dramatic highs and lows in the race for the white house. now in full swing with the conventions over in both campaigns laser focused on november. the spotlight had barely cooled for president obama's big night when the latest unemployment report cast a shadow over the democratics' post-convention glow. mitt romney called it the hangover to the party in charlotte. the labor department says u.s. employers added only 96,000 jobs in august, fewer than expected, although the jobless rate did fall to 8.1%. our chief business correspondent, ali velshi, is joining us now to take a closer look inside the numbers. ali, the unemployment rate went down, but that's not necessarily a positive development. explain what's going on. >> you know, i've said for years that it's just easier to look at the number of jobs created or lost as opposed to the unemployment rate. and i'll explain that to you in a second. but the number of jobs added in august was 96,000. now, if you look at the pattern o
obama goes before the u.n. with a call for justice. but why isn't the united states any closer to getting it? >>> gop candidate mitt romney got another compliment from president clinton today. this time, though -- maybe not much help. >>> and it's been about 24 hours. and nfl fans are still outraged by a call made by a replacement ref in last night's packer-seahawks game. even scott walker pleads he wants the refs back. and hey, they're in a union! what will it take? let's go "outfront." ♪ >>> good evening, everyone, i'm erin burnett. "outfront" tonight, obama vows he'll get the killers. today the president spent 24 minutes of his half-hour speech to the united nations talking about libya, the middle east and ambassador chris stevens. the speech, which was seen by american voters and viewers around the world, mentioned stevens 12 times. as the president paid tribute to him right from the start. >> chris stevens loved his work. he took pride in the country he served, and he saw dignity in the people that he met. and two weeks ago, he traveled to benghazi to review plans to est
